Not to my ear, Beck. I like the "-osium" to rhyme. Not much out there with that!

When she fell in love with a 'whatnot'
of political dubious upshot,
she said: "whence this crush came
and who is to blame,
I wish I could tell but I cannot."

He donned his infernal raincoat,
The "flashy" one, if you'll take note.
Shoppers can't reconcile
What they saw in that aisle
With his face, since they never saw both.

A wedding by shotgun for Linc:
The bridesmaids in iodous pink;
He pondered and mused,
His back badly bruised:
“Could I sign in invisible ink?”

A wise old professor, Doc Hagment,
Translated the mystic text fragment
With his language converter
While he ate his frankfurter,
Then understood just what the hag meant.

Thanks! Sometimes I have to let the words bounce around in my pea brain for a while before an idea comes. Have been trying to inject a little humor if I can.


Bernard fell in love with a preacher
But found her a prim, frigid creature.
On a date at the crater
He killed her and ate her,
Declaring: “AHA! That’ll teach her!”

@ coffeebean: That's great! I like when there are internal rhymes in the lines. I'm afraid we're scaring others away, though - I wouldn't want to do that. I hope there are afficianados out there who are enjoying this doggerel, even if they aren't participating...

In the hand of his girlfriend, Inez,
A lad placed a small, plastic fez.
Despite its festoonery
And her boyfriend's buffoonery,
Inez knew it simply held PEZ.
